Building an Automation Framework in a DevOps Pipeline

Add to calendar

Building better software at a large banking corporation includes challenges such as a wide technology stack touching the mainframe, desktop client, web, and mobile; globally dispersed teams across vendors; and partners with varying levels of automation experience. This use case explains how we built an inclusive framework that supports the pillars of automation: authoring, reporting, execution, and development. Learn how to combine and leverage the strengths of open source technologies like Django, PostgreSQL, and Selenium and integrate them with enterprise technologies like Jenkins, GitHub, ALM, and LeanFT. The result is an automation framework that is integrated into the DevOps pipeline and allows all resources to work in support of automation while development is done in parallel. You'll get insight into how to address automation in a DevOps ecosystem where applications rely on other applications. Come learn how to transform your process and technology.
